Cesar Hernandez followed by slamming a long three-point ball at the expense of Astros reliever Brooks Raley.
The Indians filled the tracks against Blake Taylor with two strikes in the eighth round, but Harold Ramirez was knocked out to end the threat. Ryan Presley allowed a single on the ninth, but recorded a 13th save on 14 occasions.
The Astros scored two races in the second round and four races in the third against starting Sam Hentges (1-3), who allowed six races in two and two-thirds of the rounds.
José Altuve started hostilities in the third half when he dropped a bundle out of Hentge’s reach.
Altuve stole the second pillow and he came to score after a double from Correa. The Astros sent nine strokes onto the plate and finished the third inning with a six-point lead.
